Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

The standard trigger mechanism usually mounts the spear tail in a socket created by the sear box that wraps most of the shaft circumference except for the spacing created by the width of the levers....

Re: cracks on trigger area

I drill pin holes to size as at some time I may want to drive the pins out and I don't want the timber to crack. Once when dismantling a long-time favourite gun to my dismay one pin drove out taking...

Re: cracks on trigger area

The mechanism pin holes flank the pocket in the stock that holds the trigger mechanism. This is the weakest part of the gun if it is subjected to side loads during rough handling, such as the gun...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

Note that there does not appear to be any cam locking of the levers here, the mechanism seems to rely on the force at the sear lever's lower tip, or retention step, not being great enough to roll the...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

A few years back Sea Hornet Australia were developing a eurogun style speargun which was a first for them as previously their range consisted of cocking stock guns. Some of these guns had a very...

Re: Dano w/ MAKO Spearguns: on world records and pole spear resting hooks

What about ferrule joins in the spear as that is where I hang onto mine. I don’t care about records except to see how big some fish can get, but ultimately they are all heading for the frying pan or...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

This second diagram shows how the "mobile" roller tooth can accommodate different diameter spears by riding up inside its cradle or cut-out in the sear lever arm to jam spear tails against the sear...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

I have been asked for a full diagram of the Ermes Sub Double Roller mech so here is an approximation of it. The important part of this mechanism is the shape of the top of the trigger which has a...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Possibly in the interests of improving vacuum seal life Salvimar have introduced a new spear tail with an angled collision face of 45 degrees. Right now they only come on the 7 mm and 7.5 mm shafts...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

If you buy a Vuoto and want to try the wet barrel equivalent it is relatively simple to swap the muzzle to the standard muzzle. There is no other difference in these guns. The wet barrel guns...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Anything that is designed to be pressurised is always built with a safety factor so that varying operating conditions don’t impose a risk of the item blowing up. The safety factor is probably of the...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Those grey tubular grip handles remind me of the extra fore grip that used to be added to the old Arbaletes such as the Champion later Beuchat "Canon" to drag the nose of the longer gun models around...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Well it appears that Seaviews has the Mares "Sten" Pipin guns. The problem with the “Aqua Gear” guns is that initially they had flimsy grip handles as they went for that over moulded grip handle...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Well if I were you I would go for the Pipin model as the chance to get one of those is a real opportunity. The Asso is actually a slight variation on the original Sten model with its finger grip...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

The very long guns also had a float and a folding knee loading handle, you can see one here.

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Actually when I think about it the Pipin guns would be from about 15 to 20 years ago, so they would be using the 2001 handle which is what the Sten uses now. The handle was adopted from the 1994...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

Some wound tape on the tank to protect the anodized surface, but it is not really necessary. Some guns have an aiming stripe on the tank, a modern example is the Salvimar Dark Side with a green...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

The very long Sten models were sold as Pipin models and they were all over 100 cm. From memory there were three sizes topping out at the 150 cm. They were rather expensive, but were basically Sten...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

There are extension loaders such as the Mares Clever loader. You certainly want a loader that will not break! Pelengas make one which is available from the “Pelengas Store” on eBay at times. You...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

The problem in creating a much longer gun is sourcing the precision bore tubing for the inner barrel and the tank tube. The manufacturers have this tubing specially made for them as it is not just...

Re: Long Pneumatic Guns

The Aqua Gear is just a shameless rip-off of the Seac Sub “Asso” which has been around for decades, but the Aqua Gear quality is suspect. I have seen them sell brand new for under 100 bucks for a 90...
